Morning Sunshine: Phoenix Suns News (April 1)

This is our daily feature here at SunNGun where we scavenge the internet for recent stories related to the Phoenix Suns organization and relay them to you, so we are the one-stop-shopping for all things Phoenix Suns. We’ll have it for you everyday, hopefully posted for you in the morning. The links to these full articles are in the title, take a look at the entire stories. The writers at all the other blogs are good and have some interesting information and perspective, but come back here for our take and full coverage of the team. Suns look to defy the odds one more time

“Will Phoenix finish what it started? That’s what everyone is wondering with eight games remaining and the Suns mired in the middle of a playoff push. Four teams are vying for three spots, and all of two games separates the top (Golden State) from the bottom (Memphis) in that quartet.” Marcus Morris has mid-range game locked in

“To every old-school critic of the game that says the mid-range shot is dead, Marcus Morris is a slap to the sun-burnt face. By the time a defender has tried to account for the jab step, ball fake and/or step-back, it’s already a 50-percent chance he’s toast. Yes, Morris is that good 8-to-16 feet away from the basket, where he has converted half of his shot attempts this season. And that’s just one area where he’s caught fire.”

ESPN: 2014 NBA Front office overall rankings (Phoenix Suns 12th)

“We asked our ESPN Forecast panel to rate every owner, basketball decision-maker and coach from 0 to 10, and we asked the panel to tell us how important each role is. In particular, we asked the voters to rate each team’s front-office management on its guidance and leadership in terms of how it affects overall on-court success, both in the short and long term. From there, we simply calculated the ratings to determine the best and worst front offices in the NBA. Here’s what we found.”
